Crinnie Pix

As requested, here are some detail pics of my crinnie.

Its made from 2 layers of tiered nylon. With an elastic waist band.
It looks like it would be very simple to make. Two full circle tiered skirts. One sewn into the front side of the waist area and the other sewn into the back side and then those two waistband pieces sewn together.
full circle + for fullness
waistband. (layers of waistband not actually connected together until first set of stitched detail)
because the 2 layers of skirts are connected to the front and back of the waistband layers


Crinnies and Cookies

Today I got a late start, the hubs and I lazed around most of the day in our jammies but when we finally went out I wanted to look cute, even if we were just going to the grocery store. I went with my favorite dress the jumblelaya dress. But instead of wearing it with my usual cropped red cardigan I decided to go with a recent etsy purchase a navy short sleeve cardigan. I wore it wrapped and belted with my favorite red belt and FINALLY got to wear my bakelite boat pin.
I also go to take my new pumps from lisazain for a spin.
And my new crinnie! Its super full and soft, much softer than my net one.
I also discovered today that it has cute little bugs on the scallops.

And I got to wear my navy anchor hair bow from OriginalCenz
I love my little boat! :D

I got lots of stares, some look-backs. Some smiles and some frowns toward my look today...but wha-cha gunna do? While we were out at the store I decided I needed to make cookies..so we grabbed all the things I needed and after some steaks and smashed 'taters. I put on my jammies and apron and started in on the cookies. I'm making my favorite chocolate chip cookies with walnuts YUMMMM.
this is a big bowl of butter...its a nice start, don't you think?!
Hair is up in classic "baking style"

my favorite part of cookies, the beaters.
does anyone else have a cookie spoon? I use this spoon only to make cookies. It makes them the perfect size.

Not too shabby...my hubs already had 4 of them..hehe
Cookie run way. I always use paper bags for my cookies, its a great way to recycle them.
